Gloucester County Social Security Disability Lawyers

SSD Lawyers

If you suffered an injury or were diagnosed with a condition that makes gainful employment impossible for the foreseeable future, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. As long as you paid FICA taxes on your earnings for the past five years, you have the right to collect benefits from the Social Security Administration when you are physically or mentally unable to work.

Our Gloucester County Social Security Disability lawyers provide a full range of services to residents seeking disability benefits they desperately need to cover daily expenses and make ends meet.


Our firm takes a hands-on approach to help clients understand their options, navigate the SSD application or appeals process, and seek the full benefits they are entitled to.

Compassionate Lawyers

What Typically Happens

Strict guidelines coupled with bureaucratic red tape means that the majority of SSD claims are initially denied, even for deserving applicants. If you need assistance filing for SSD, or your claim was denied, don’t give up hope.

Experienced Gloucester County Social Security Lawyers

The Gloucester County social security lawyers of Rutter Mills have the knowledge and expertise to fight for your rights. We have served the Commonwealth for more than 60 years and can exponentially increase your chances of receiving the Social Security benefits you deserve.

For years, you’ve paid into Social Security – a system that provides cash benefits to those who become disabled and unable to hold a job before reaching retirement age. The application process may seem simple enough, but one mistake, missed deadline, or omission can leave you and your loved ones in a precarious position.

Qualifying for SSD benefits

At Rutter Mills, we’ve helped countless people navigate the SSD application process. We know that the bar for qualifying for disability benefits is set high. You will need to prove that you have a serious medical condition or illness that prevents you from working in any capacity. The cause of your impairment could be due to a disease, a traumatic accident, or other causes, so long as it meets the Social Security Administration’s definition of ‘disabled.’

  • An impairment that has lasted or is expected to last 12 months, or will likely lead to death
  • A condition that is included in the SSA’s regulations, or is considered medically equivalent to those listed conditions
  • A disability that prevents you from doing any full time work for which you are qualified
  • A condition that dramatically hinders your ability to perform basic tasks like sitting, walking, standing or retaining information

The rejection rate for Social Security disability benefits is quite high for initial applicants. If this happens to you, there are several stages of appeal. Your legal counsel will submit a request for reconsideration within 60 days and prepare you for a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).

It’s best to retain knowledgeable legal representation at the outset, as this can reduce the odds of a rejected application. Your choice of law firm can make a huge impact on the success of your claim, and our Gloucester County SSD lawyers can also guide you through the appeals process.

Mr. Young and Ms. Kathy Saunders went above and beyond for me. The day I walked into Mr. Young's office I thought there was no hope for my case and I would never be made whole. I can say two and a half weeks ago my case was settled above and beyond my expectations. After 4 long years I have finally been made whole. Thank you Mr. Young and Ms Kathy. You saved my life.

Danielle E.

I came to Rutter Mills during one of the most difficult and terrifying times in my life. Mr. Young and his assistant Kathy Saunders were so welcoming and understanding. They worked diligently to handle my case. It is by no means a quick and easy process, however these two make the wait worth it. I hope you never find yourself in my shoes but if you do I highly recommend these two to help you along your process.

Rutter Mills law firm did a wonderful job with my case. Attorney Porcaro and his paralegal, Kamilah White, assisted me a great deal, kept me informed and optimistic about my case. They helped me feel prepared and confident to testify at trial. Another plus was I did not have to pay anything until my case was won. I highly recommend this law firm for any one else who may need assistance.

Victor B.

What I loved about my Rutter Mills experience was the team approach they provided from start to finish. The paralegal Selena D. was always keeping me updated and accurately collecting information to make sure my case was on a strong foundation. My attorney, Adam Lotkin raises the bar to the highest standard. Adam's knowledge, experience, and grit afforded me the strongest settlement in my case. Top 1% settlement is the best way to describe it. Your attorney matters and I am so glad I choose Rutter Mills, Adam Lotkin, and team to represent my case. I will use Rutter Mills again for my future needs.
